in a big way at those polling stations. those measures, take advantage of those. president obama right now speaking in mentor, ohio. let's listen in. >> -- how proud i am of erin and her sisters and their whole family. give them a big round of applause. [ applause ] there they are right there! erin was pretty excited about meeting me. she saw justin bieber the other day. so i'm like the second most exciting person she's met. the in the last few days. no. my understanding also is that this man right here just w-- ths band just won the state championship. best band in the house in ohio! in the house! congratulations! and the football team is in its first play-off game tonight. so the cardinals have a lot going on right now. despite all that, the fact you still came out i'm grateful for. so thank you. for the past several days, all of us have been focused on one of the worst hurricanes in our lifetimes. and each day i've been getting on calls with mayors and governors, county officials just trying to make sure that people are getting able to help. i tell them the entire country is behind them
from harrisburg right now. the polls show that romney is narrowing the gap with obama in that state. can he realistically hope to take the state this late in the game? >> reporter: no doubt about it. 90 minutes from me at the airport you'll have paul ryan, the republican running mate holding a rally. yeah, tomorrow mitt romney is going to be in suburban philadelphia. that's the swing part of the state, the part of the state that really determines who wins pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes. the obama campaign is not taking this sitting down. jill biden is coming to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the final nine days of this campaign in pennsylvania, $10 million worth of ads. most of them from the romney campaign and its allies. they're outspending the obama campaign 2 to 1. fred, nobody, no republican has won pennsylvania since 1988 in a presidential
. >> stephanie: right. new surveys in which obama held a solid lead in ohio, eight point lead in wisconsin, but romney aids insisted things are on the right track. >> of course she didn't. of course we are. of course we are on the right wrack. >> stephanie: we feel we are in a very good place and this race is exactly where we wanted to be. and their political director said right now their firewalls are burning. >> firewalls don't burn they prevent burning from getting through. >> i assumed there was a wall of fire. [ mocking laughter ] >> oh, my god. >> stephanie: there has been little movement since his first debate surge. several pollsters are suggesting that mitt romney is claiming the polls are wrong across the board. i imagine mitt romney -- is he still collecting unneeded canned goods at this point? that the red cross -- not specifically we don't need that please don't send that. >> yeah. ♪ there are all kinds of goods, canned goods, vacuum packed on your grocery's shelve ♪ ♪ in the value of the giant douche bag ♪ [ laughter ] >> stephanie: back with sexy l
, president obama. right now in ohio. and he is in springfield, ohio, i think. and as i say he's all of our president, but he's your boss as a member of the cabinet. let's hear what he has to say. >> probable journey for more than two centuries and it's also guided us and carried us through the trials and tribulations of the last four years. in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today, our businesses have created 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. the american auto industry is back on top. home values, housing starts are on the rise. we're less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last 20 years. because of the service and sacrifice of our brave men and women in uniform the war in iraq is over, the war in afghanistan is ending, al qaeda has been decimated, osama bin laden is dead. [ applause ] >> we're on the move, ohio. we've made real progress these last four years. the reason all of you are here today, the reason i'm here toda
it another way, that mitt romney is going to either win or equal, right, president obama's record with the women's vote, i think that would be -- i think the facts show that would be a disaster for american women in terms of their standing and if they go that way, it's almost -- i hate to say it it's almost they'll deserve what they get. >> right. i can't -- i certainly don't think that the democrats have not said enough about it. you know? it seems like every campaign email and video reminds women of republican's record on rape -- not record on rapes, but comments on rape and records on abortion and birth control. and you are talking about health care medicare by disproportionately affect women. women tend to outlive men, and these programs are strongly relied on by women. >> bill: there may be other issues where they are close where they stand o are they similar in position or there's not that much of a big difference, when it comes to women's issues there is no doubt about it, that president obama is absolutely on the right side and mitt romney is dead wro
's unfair, but that's what sticks in people's minds. >> in your mind, has president obama made the right move, wrong move? what do you think? >> i think he has made the appropriate move here. he hasn't been too over. that's the key here. you can't be overtly political in how you respond to these kinds of disasters. he obviously will accrue some benefits because he's acting aas commanders in chief are supposed to act and help people on a broad basis. as the remarks of governor christie of new jersey proved, this is a -- he gets bipartisan support out of this disaster. that has to help the bottom line come election day. >> of course, he hasn't been -- president obama wanted to fit in one last campaign paerps in florida, then hurriedly flew back because he realized he couldn't make it back to washington because the storm was coming. so he hasn't acted perfectly along this path, right? >> well, that's true. he has a number of surrogates and i understand bill clinton will be picking up a number of campaign appearances on the campaign trail. so that is going to help matters. president obama ca
' right he has a glossy new you brochure. i looked at that brochure and i played this role of obama during debate prep and it is more of the same. you can argue that we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and it hasn't worked by president obama's own when he surements. he said unemployment would be 50% lower today than it is if we just passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth would be two thirds higher than it actually is. it hants worked. the one thing he does have in the new proposal is to raise taxes on about a million small businesses including a lot here in ohio. that will result according to a study by the national federation of independent businesses which a 700,000 job loss which we can't afford. governor romney instead has pro posed progrowth policies including a tax reform proposal that lowers the rate of taxation but makes the tax code far more efficient and simplifies it and that will result in 7 million new jobs over the next ten years. that is the choice people have. in ohio they are choosing mitt thusy and that is where aenthusiasm is. >> the two cam
. it is terrible for romney. maybe the polls are wrong, but if you're looking at the polls right now, obama has got it. >> did romney have momentum or was that just republican spin? >> he did have momentum after the first debate -- >> we have had a three since then -- >> what obama was never able to recapture the lead. >> i cannot say with certainty that there was momentum, no momentum. i cannot tell. you look at the polls hour after hour and you get a sense that this thing is very tight, even when you go to some of the battle ground states. >> yes, the first debate made an enormous difference in the campaign. it allowed mitt romney to reintroduce himself with no opposition on the part of the president as the moderate massachusetts reasonable mitt. gone was the saber-rattling mitt, keep out the foreigners mitt, round up the suspects mitt and send them to practice -- [laughter] he became reasonable, intelligent, poised, forget the cayman islands and the swiss bank accounts. frank bruni of "the new york times" made a telling point -- the first debate was important because it may president obama in th
we know right now. president obama has declared states of emergency in several mid atlantic and northeastern states including maryland, new jersey, new york and connecticut. fema, the federal emergency management agency established emergency operations centers in those places to coordinate preparations and disaster relief. >>> hurricane sandy knocked out electricity to more than 5,000 customers in new jersey so far. officials warn that number will grow into the hundreds of thousands. >>> sandy is being blamed for 65 deaths in the caribbean, 51 in haiti where residents endured three days of constant rain. >>> just this morning, a 17-man crew was forced to abandon the hms bounty after getting caught in sandy's high seas off the coast of carolina. the coast guard says the members safely boarded two life rafts. >>> this storm is shaping up to be a travel nightmare. nearly 7,500 flights canceled in the northeast while amtrak suspended service in the northeast corridor. the show must go on for comedians jimmy fallon, jimmy kimmel. they're both saying they'll go ahead with tapings
think is powerful. >> is there obama momentum right now, chuck? you score these pretty straight right down the middle. >> it's funny. i call it -- there's sort of the campaign insider's zeitgeist, if you will, and there's this assumption whether you heard haley barbour say it publicly, i talked to strategists on both sides, on the republican side worry about it privately and the democratic side hopeful for it. they think there's some sort of bounce for the president on sandy. nobody can point to any metric yet to prove this, but when you think about where things were a week ago, a week ago there was this assumption that, boy, all the intangibles here at the end were going to -- >> let me -- >> -- to romney. now it feels there's intangibles that may favor the president. >> i get the sense that the love of romney by the right and other political players is based on sand in this case. and guys like the governor of new jersey and all the voices out there that haven't come to romney's help this week, they don't love him enough to say, wait a minute, forget this storm, this guy is great. >>
's go to president obama right now. president obama: i just received a full briefing from our emergency response team at as well as fema and other agencies helpful in response and recovery efforts in the department of energy, department of transportation, the department of homeland security and the department of health and human services. obviously everybody is aware this point that this will be a big and powerful storm. all across eastern seaboard everybody is taking the appropriate preparations. i've spoken to all the governors in all these states, they have issued emergency declarations. they have been turned around quickly in the white house. we have pre-positioned assets so fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments making sure the food and water and emergency generation is available for those communities that will be hardest hit. we anticipate that the center of the storm will hit landfall sometime this evening, but because of the nature of this storm, we are certain that this is going to be a slow-moving process through a wide swath of the country. billio
politics. >> they lean right. >> i think obama is so confident in ohio, one has to ask a question, why are they deploying 600 lawyers in a county to make sure that the people who are voting get moved along fast enough. i think they are worried that it's very risky to predict the outcome. >> why are the republicans are going after four states in swing states claiming the votes are going to obama and should be going to romney. >> because they know they are losing. >> jon: let's get back to the coverage. if president obama loses what is the media theme going to be? >> i think a lot of people, andrew sullivan, if you only voted, daily beast. if you only voted obama once you have to vote for him twice. i think some version of obviously the american people and alan is ready with that script. they bubbled up and he lost. think that is what he'll say. >> jon: if romney loses? >> it's going to be further indication that the republican party is dying, it's been taken over by tea party extremists. that the party is out of touch and demographically ill-suited. >> the problem with that. >> the rob
at our blog at ed.msnbc.com. >> one of the big hurd els that president obama has right now is to get white working male os his side. how do you see that playing out from what you've been able to see on the ground in ohio. >> that's exactly why he went to lake county today. it's a place i know well, i was born and raised in that county and it was a tight one in 2008. barack obama pulled it out by less than 1%, but it's a county that's 95% whoit and it's a place where barack obama believes that his economic message will resonate. he was hitting hard in his speech today. he was enn in the 82 out of 88 counties that have businesses that are related to the auto industry, is the controversy that's gone on over that widely discredited ad put out by the romney campaign. and if you talk to people on the ground, one of the things that they'll tell you is that they think there has been a backlash against that ad. that the voters here know exactly what's going on in the auto industry. one out of every eight jobs is tied to the auto industry and they say they're not being fooled by it. i also tal
, that is in part a disadvantage for president obama, but it's too hard to say right now. >> hogan, governor romney is continuing that cam taken to go forward in states not impacted by hurricane sandy. it was really interesting, joe scarborough and his observations this morning he made on "morning joe." take a listen. >> this was mitt romney's best weekend, and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes, but it's a new dynamic into the race and changes everything with with a week to go. >> let's talk about this. not only could this stall romney's momentum, but it also brings up something that mitt romney was forceful about during the primary debates. he sad voe indicated shutting down team na and letting states handle disaster relief. watching what's taking place with sandy, know we have 12 different states that declared states of emergency and also the district, washington, d.c., does this pose a problem for mitt romney if he gets questioned on his belief about fema and tries to go to some places to look presidential post-sandy, is that an issue for him? >> that's a great point, t
't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidates on the ballots. a couple of things of on those polls that i noticed. number one cuyahoga county was weighted at 13%. the truth about cuyahoga county from 2004 to 2008 the total votes cast in ohio went up 100,000 if you add up all the candidates but in cuyahoga county, between 2004 and 2008 which was a big year for barack obama, cuyahoga county casted less ballots in the election in 2008 than 2004. the relative strength of cuyahoga has dropped to 11% north 13%. >> bill: that's very favorable to barack obama. that's the cleveland area. so, if they are weighting that in a heavy way. >> at 13% instead of 11%. >> bill: it's reality that the vote is dropping there. it's going to be better for romney. >> true. >> bill: do you trust rasmussen, larry? you are pretty outspoken about these polls. remember, scott was on it the last time and the time before that scott hit it right between the eyes. >> no, i know scott quite w
for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> under the boardwalk. hurricane obama buries romney. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the hurricane and this president. hemingway called it grace under pressure, the highly educated call it good government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch.
like to set the country right side up. they understand president obama has been the leader in turning this country around, so much so that its growth and job creation keeps going up and up. they like to see an optimistic approach to government. that's what president obama has. they're also big believers in education. for a candidate like mitt romney who wants to abolish the department of education, we think we have a greater message for the independents, for women. we certainly are protecting women's health care. those are issues the independents are interested in. as well as the economy. who are they going to choose? someone who sides with sort of the antiquated views of abolishing or eliminated planned parenthood and attacking women's health care or look to someone who believes in embracing all of america. that's an optimistic view. we're optimistic and working hard and we really believe that nments along with those who are champions of president obama's cause will come to recognize that america is greater when we're united together. that's how the vote will turn out on november 6th
supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now in new york city as major problems persist after hurricane sandy. lines two miles long just to get gas. >>> and we're told within the last hour, there's a four-hour traffic jam in the lincoln tunnel. we'll get a live update for you. >>> plus, congressman todd akin was abandoned by the national gop establishment over his, quote, legitimate rape comments. but now akin is putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into a major ad blitz. the question is where is the money coming from? it is just one of the things we thought you should know, and you can joinous conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall and @newsnation. [ lisa ] my name's lisa, and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit
it will be sunny, seeing that blanket of fog. 60s and 70s. >>> 7:15. new this morning, president obama right now is heading back to washington, d.c. he canceled a florida campaign appearance this morning because of the approaching hurricane sannie. >> scott macfarland is out on the streets of washington, d.c. to show us -- to show us how the storm is affecting the federal government and president obama's schedule. >> and dave, this seping news, the white house says the president has canceled tomorrow's appearance in green bay, wisconsin to stay here in d.c. and monitor this storm, d.c., the nation's capital, is a ghost town. let's take a look at the president hopping on a plane. he knows what it sit -- what is sitting -- what is hitting here. the rains already coming down heavy. they will get heavier as the afternoon moves along. the administrator of fema talking about how they are preparing this morning. >> pennsylvania, flooding and we've been moving stuff into position. because power outages are likely to top the million- dollar mark. the u.s. -- is announcing closures. >>> the supreme court
everybody is all right and it is a rare moment where a republican praises president obama. now, one republican who did not was the former fema director under george w. bush, michael brown. if you don't remember who michael brown is, you might remember this moment during the bush administration. >> there will be plenty of opportunities to help later on. right now, the immediate concern is to save lives and get food and medicine to people so we can stabilize the situation. i want to thank you all and brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. the fema director is working 24/7. [ applause ] >> cenk: well, that became a big dispute later. michael brown spoke out today and said that president obama was moving too fast during this storm which is fascinating. and he then went on to clarify he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and
genuinely believe this is a guy who wants to do right by his people. barack obama, you're seeing a human being there. and the camera doesn't lie. obviously, will this weigh an election -- obviously, it leans clearly for obama, but what i love about this is what you see with these guys is the same what you see with the guys in the streets of hoboken that were affected. i believe people are overwhelmingly are tremendously decent including politicians, and you're seeing that. >> is it too cynical to read all this in? let's be clear. analysis is happening within the washington political bubble. but i think if you're watching on television, you're seeing chris christie doing what he has to do for his state and the president doing what a president does, arriving in a disaster zone offering consolation but also his federal help. >> yeah. that's all true. but it does have a political impact. it's not unreasonable to say what are the politics in terms of the impact after this? but one of the most corrosive things about washington in the last 8, 12 years has been the permanent campaign. and we in
saw when he got out to tour the damaged area. he will do the same with president obama. >>> all right, thank you craig. from new jersey we go to our weather center our chief meteorologist. what's the situation now with that massive storm. >> the storm is still massive. the worse is over. that tial surge, the big surf of last night that's when the real problems happen. we're going to see continued sunshine. over the next 24 hours it makes it way into eastern new york. it is massive, it extends from chicago south, northern atlanta, norfolk and maine. look how big that thing is. continued problems especially if you're trying to fly in and out of any of the major hubs out of the united states in the next few hours and into the united states. we'll see you back here in a little bit. >>> despite the extensive damage from sandy the new york stock exchange is set to reopen tomorrow. right now workers are running through an extensive testing of the stock exchange systems in the home that they can flush out any problems. the stock exchange was closed yesterday and today due to that storm. the l
time to get back to that punching bags? >> well, apparently. president obama decided to go right back on the campaign till today. i talked to one democratic couple of hours ago there was a little surprise for the puppet president obama was doing well, his sort of, you know, fema director in charge, politically he thought he was holding helping him, governor christie was being nice to him, they went back on the attack after that. >> when you look at this, jonathan, what needs to be centered on? looks at president obama is the fema director has made up for lost ground. it looks like the pressure is on mitt romney. >> i think he needs to turn the corner and make the final days of the campaign, which is no more of this drama in washington on every single legislative thing where we have parties bickering and fighting. he worked in a bipartisan cents with a legislator. i think that is the closing argument. we will turn the corner on all of this drama that is happening over the last four years, turning a page and starting fresh. that's what he needs to get out to voters. gerri: we have swing
. this october surprise has revealed a surprising new alliance. obama/christie. that's right. just listen to how the new jersey governor, a top romney surroga surrogate, heeds praise on president obama. >> the president called me. i appreciate that call from the president. it was very proactive and i appreciate that type of leadership. the president is great. i spoke to him three times yesterday pep called me for the last time at midnight last night. asked me what i needed. i said if you could expedite the major declaration without the fema mumbo jumbo. i got a call from fema at 2 a.m. the president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. i was on the phone with him yesterday three times personally. he gave me his number at the white house. told me to call him. and he absolutely means it. the president has been outstanding in this. so the folks at fema, craig fugate and his folks have been excellent. >> the president deserves great credit. he's been outstanding. a republican praising a democrat. but the powerful fact is this wasn't about politics. this was genuine thanks to a presid
that the quinnipiac poll is right about ohio, then the obama explanation of why they're going into these states is more credible. >> these states being michigan and pennsylvania. >> which is not oh, my god, the sky is falling, we're losing everywhere, we need to play a lot of defense, but rather, you know, they can't win ohio, so they're looking for another place. so we've got enough money to make sure that nothing goes wrong. the president's not going to win these battleground states by the same margins he won last time. there's some natural tightening. most of these states elected republican governors two years ago. >> two years ago. >> and so the president would be happy winning these states by two or three points. >> michigan, 2 1/2 points. this is one of these states that we republicans stopped expecting to win when ronald reagan retired. you usually put it in the pennsylvania category. do you believe mitt romney's within the margin of error in michigan? >> i tend to think -- i tend to give the benefit of the doubt to good polls. >> that's a good poll. >> that is a fine poll. i'm intereste
obama: there's just no quit in america... and you're seeing that right now. over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. welcome to the world leader in derivatives. welcome to superderivatives. >>> fema's about to run out of money. there are some people who say to it on a case
still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this year. it's all due to the auto bailout. it is working and mitt romney, we remember, opposed it. he wrote that famous op-ed for "the new york times". headline... let detroit fail. where he said don't do anything to help them out. let them go belly up. so, of course, romney campaign realizes panic panic panic panic, oh, my god we're losing ohio which we need. no republican president in over 100 -- no republican has ever been elected president in over 100 years without carrying ohio. so th
your vote for romney because you're upset at obama, right? n no. i think there is a case to be made against obama. there is also a case to be made for romney. mitt romney, i have to say, among the republicans in the field, i am a democrat, but among the republicans in the primary field, romney was the only one who i thought was in the end, could be a credible alternative to obama. but as we've gotten closer, i think romney is much better than merely a credible alternative. i think his policies are sound. i think he's got a real idea how to create jobs. the other thing i like about him is that there is not a hint of scandal in this man's life. neither in his personal life, nor his career. this is an honest man full of integrity and it will be nice to have that in the white house. >> gretchen: when i interviewed hi and ann together three years ago issues they said to me then, you will never read about us in the tabloids, ever. they said it am fatticcally. listen to ryan and romney as they seem to be talking about hope and change. imagine that. >> this is a turfing point for america th
position it's a rally if romney wins and a slight gain if obama wins. >> exactly right. corporate america leaner, meaner, healthier than ever before. making $105 a share. even if it were to come off a little bit, the multiple is an indictment on the lack of pro-growth policies. you'll get maybe 15 multiple if you get an obama election. romney, look for a 20 multiple. >> okay. john, i gather you're not worried about the effects of hurricane sandy. you're saying between the fourth quarter and first quarter, we will get back whatever we lost and then maybe some. >> yeah, i think so p. >> we're talking 2%, 2.5%. destroying bridges doesn't create jobs. >> i think we'd all agree when i look into the tone of the discussion, we're talking about moderate growth. 1.5% to 2% growth. we're really not talking about back to 3% to 4% growth. and i would say we really need to resolve these uncertainties about affordable care health care, we need to -- dodd-frank, the bush tax cuts. a lot of policy uncertainty whether that needs to be resolved before we move the economy forward.uncertaintywheto be resolve
see him getting it right there. both romney and president obama spoke with rubio and, of course, expressed their concern and support for his daughter and his family. >> brian: all right. is this terrorism 101? new york university president requiring her students to plot a terrorist attack for a homework assignment. the professor asked her students to write up 15 pages describing how they would attack the city and what the aftermath would be like, for example, how much it would cost us. former naval criminal investigator says it prepares students for a career in intelligence. but some police officers are calling it an insult to those who died in 9-11. remember, khalid sheikh mohammed was on campus learning about america and plotting against america and so was al-awlaki. >> gretchen: ban on halloween, a number of schools and towns are putting a stop to halloween plans. over the past years, a dozen schools are doing away with costume, parties, other celebrations. you might be asking what would the reason be? some say it's because students can't afford to participate. there are some
sandy is doing right now. sandy forced the presidential candidates to make big changes. president obama made his changes on the fly. canceling a campaign event in florida around returning to the white house. mitt romney held a rally in iowa and canceled events tonight and tomorrow. "special report" from washington up and down the atlantic coast starts at 6:00. now back to a wet new york and "the five." >> eric: this is a fox news weather alert. hurricane sandy, the latest. get team tropical storm rick leventhal and steve harrigan, but first to janice dean. >> we should see landfall from the system in minutes. over the next 20 minutes to 30 minutes as it continues its northwestern progression. 28 miles per hour. so this storm has sped up. the result are the same. we'll still see the incredible storm surge, record storm surge along the long island sound, delaware bay. you can see as we zoom in, i will show you where the centersy.
